    Default Custom scale brass tags?

    Iím looking for custom scale brass tags. Something like the picture below. Maybe in the 1/4 scale range?

    Anyone know of a possible source?

    I'm not sure of anyone who makes them, but I've seen tutorials online that made the process look relatively simple.

    I've read about a type of printer that can make a resist, transfering it to metal with heat, dissolve the paper off, then using something like pcb etching solution to do the chem mill.

    Sounds like youíre referring to photo etching

    I need to make this and other tags/warnings in 1/10 for the M548. My first idea is to make stickers out of them in a specialized shop.
    Should I consider photo etching instead?

    If you photo etch, it needs to be on aluminum somehow. The 1:1 tags are made of aluminum, older ones may have been sheetmetal. I would just have a decal printed for those.
